    Ashwood Abbey: God-damn, what a hangover!

      You are not strong of conviction and did something really, really dumb one night. During a hunt you and your fellows killed a half-dozen vampires in a coordinated attack. This was not without losses: all but yourself were killed. But there was blood everywhere. You used your phial to gather the blood of the vampires and mixed it like you always did. With this treasure you toasted to your fallen comrades and drank it all down in one go. And you died. You think. But you got back up again, changed. You're not a vampire, but you are certainly not human anymore. These old powers you needed to use the blood for? You don't anymore. But this change pitted your former comrades against you. You are now just like a vampire in their eyes. So you took a new name because the old one was hunted. You are now Enoch, the child of Cain. You believe you now have the power of your father, and as such you still ask the same question as you did before: Who is Cain?

        The ultimate irony: The Hunters' activities creating victims and turning them into monsters who choose to come back and strike their tormentors.

          Ascending Ones - You were an acolyte of the Southern Temple. Your body could not withstand the poisonous effects of the Elixirs, but you prided yourself on being a thorough researcher. The Hierophants were ecstatic when you helped finally reassemble Instructions of Abed the Barber, the final text they believed they needed to perform the ritual of reanimation. With it they could raise up an army of righteous immortals to strike a final blow against the darkness once and for all, and you wanted to be a part of it. You studied your role in the ceremony until every movement and verse was rote. The night of destiny came, the body was prepared, and the work began. It... didn't work though. When the smoke cleared the corpse was still, and you felt as though the pall of your failure could suffocate you. You poured over every individual aspect of the ritual, every line, every liniment. Then it occurred to you. Perhaps the mortal clay had lain inert too long. Perhaps what you needed was something fresher. Much fresher. This was your moment, your moment to really contribute something to the struggle. You volunteered, and you were clothed in the robes of sacrifice and with only a flicker of hesitation you imbibed the venom which would make you ready for the procedure. You expected a darkness, or even a distant light, but all you saw was a vast... grayness. An absence. You hovered in nowhere for such a long time you feared you had failed yet again, the price of your inadequacy to exist here forever. Then in a spasm between waking and being born you erupted back into the universe. Something felt... different. You looked down at yourself.

          What have you done?

              Deviant: the Renegades, being developed by Awakening's Dave Brookshaw. Basic concept: you play the subject of an experiment/ritual who comes out the other side with powers, a broken soul, and a conspiracy hunting you down.

                Said conspiracy can vary in power based on how powerful you are (because making the ├╝bermensch requires resources): you can have anything from two dozen yokels who worship a fish god to having the full force of the MI6 trying to capture you.

                  The reason this is coming up here, is that Dave asked Monica - Hunter 2nd's developer - for permission to use Cheiron as one of the Deviant-making and -hunting antagonists. (I don't know what she said)
